Everton boss David Moyes admitted he was relieved to have grabbed a point against Blackburn after being out-played in the first half of the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.
Blackburn went ahead through Roque Santa Cruz in the opening period and dominated for long spells before James McFadden earned his side a point with a late leveller.
Moyes said: "We did okay early on but once they scored we were second best until the break. They played much better than us and I was happy we were only 1-0 down at the break. But in the second half we did much better. Earlier we had huffed and puffed and not got anywhere but eventually I felt we deserved the draw."
